Education on child sexual abuse and POCSO 2012

Department of Social Work had organized a programme at St Ignatius English Medium School, Palladka to educate the children on sexual abuse. Eighty five School children were divided in 7 groups. Ms Deena D’Souza, Head of Dept of Social Work (UG) and Ms Shwetha Rasquinha, Head of Dept of Social Work (PG) along with students addressed the children and educated them on Good and Bad touch, chances of being sexually abused and the support systems available for them. Personal yet professional rapport was built between the children and speakers to encourage free flow of ideas and queries. Towards the end the children had questions which were answered by the speakers and the children who needed individual attention were identified for further follow up.
